For those that don’t the history of Utah and it’s culture, they would be shocked to know this is one of the greatest football states in the union.
The New Orleans Jazz were bought and sold to a local man from Utah. Back then, Basketball was low on the bucket list in the Beehive State.
Football ruled even 25 years ago.
But the Jazz were accepted and loved and have become one of the greatest franchises known to the planet.
The name made no sense, but it is like a Pug dog, it is so ugly it is beautiful, so did the name and the colors of the Utah Jazz.
BYU and Utah along with Utah State rule the state. They sell out every game win or lose and they love their teams, just as Southerners love their College Football.
If not more.
The NFL has been eyeing the SLC market for years, there is a venue that is ready for Pro football call Rice -Eccles home of the Utah Utes.
Just above 46,000, this venue is always packed. You could add a few more seats and “POOF!” The NFL is ready for Utah.
Why the Raiders? Because Los Angeles would be a disaster for them, it was bad last time?
Crime and gangs in the stands, LAPD working overtime at Raider games.
Raider gear in L.A. only being worn, who could care less about the games, just the logo , because it looks cool to them, some cities in Southern California banned Raider gear.
The L.A. gang worshippers are waiting for the Raiders return, that should tell you something.
Ice Chest rap pumping through the stands, and other L.A. gangster rappers as well. Bald headed Dodger fans wearing blue with tattoos will also be in attendance.
Oakland has become a freak show. The worship of Halloween does have anything to do with the NFL.
L.A will be a gang fest during Raider games. The city will go broke having to hiring the LAPD (like last time) to watch Raider fans who only go to the games to sell drugs and bully people.
Back in the retro days of Raider football, there was purity and knowledge of the team, this was before the move to Smog Angeles.
The Citizens of Oakland knew their team and loved them with passion.
Those days are gone, Raider fans can’t even tell you who the starting QB is, or the coach and his history, One Raider fan was asked who is the new coach and he replied” Jack In The Box!”
Enough is enough, football purist are vomiting at the though of L.A raiders returning.
Salt Lake would be true football fans who love the game and would bring honor back to the Raiders.
Utah football fans are knowledgeable and purist when it comes to anything to do with the pig skin.
They wear jerseys and hats , not Ronald Mc Donald outfits, and other costumes they have nothing to do with the Raiders, one guy at an Oakland Raider dressed up with a toilet seat around his neck.
Of course the scoffers say Utah can’t afford the NFL and the religion is too strong, some of the best football fans come from the Mormon faith.
The same thing happened to the Jazz as they moved to SLC, and it was the best move since the Dodgers moved from Brooklyn.
The Raiders would be even better.
It’s time to get back to the basics with football and fans who actually care and can bring the Raiders back to their retro winning ways with the circus acts.
